About the Manufacturer

It is estimated that nearly 75 percent of all U.S. households own PYREX products. Just as Kleenex® tissue has defined quality paper tissue and Thermos® container has defined quality thermal vacuum containers, PYREX is an American product that has defined quality, heat-resistant bakeware, prepware and serveware to several generations. When asked to name a glass bakeware brand, consumers most often reply "PYREX" products.

Back in the early 1900's, Corning Glass Works was working on a request from the railroads to produce lantern glass that would not break when the hot glass was struck by rain or snow. In response to this request, Corning developed globes made from low-expansion glass that could withstand the abuses of weathering and handling which readily broke the flint glass globes. Ironically, the shatterproof lantern globes generated were so good that Corning's managers witnessed a decline in sales of replacement globes. This super-tough "fire glass", as it was called, was resistant to temperature fluctuations, chemical corrosion and even breakage.

In July 1913, a series of events involving Bessie Littleton, the wife of the company's newest scientist, forced Corning managers to focus their attention on the consumer venture. Apparently, Mrs. Littleton had used a Guernsey brand casserole only twice when it fractured in the oven. Knowing the strength of the glass her husband worked with on a daily basis, she implored him to bring home a substitute from the Corning Glass Works plant. He returned the next evening with the bottoms of two sawed-off battery jars made from low-expansion glasses. Mrs. Littleton cooked a sponge cake in one of the surrogate baking dishes. She noted several remarkable findings: • The cooking time was shorter • The cake did not stick to the glass; it was easy to remove with little adhesion • The cake was unusually uniform • The flavor of the cake did not remain in the dish after washing • She could watch the cake bake and know it was done by looking at the underside.

Mr. Littleton brought his wife's creation to work the following day. Laboratory researchers inspected the cake, which was a "remarkable uniform shade of brown all over." The men deemed it delicious and very well baked. Thus began a two-year process to perfect this new invention. The notion of baking in glass was a whole new concept to the public. In 1915, a wondrous new line of "glass dishes for baking" appeared in the nation's hardware, department and china stores. On May 18, 1915, Boston department store Jordan Marsh placed the first PYREX bakeware order.

Sold under the PYREX® trademark, this transparent ovenware seemed to be the perfect material, for it was "swift, clean, and economical." Ordinary glassware easily chipped, cracked and broke. PYREX glass was different. This bakeware was not only sturdy, it was nearly unbreakable, eliminating the hassle and cost of replacement. (The durability factor would become even more important as resources grew scarce during the Great Depression and World War II.)

Great Set, Even Better Price!

Brian from Sacramento, CA– Verified Buyer

Pyrex is my favorite storage choice for the refrigerator and freezer. They are high quality and can go from storage to microwave to meal in less than 5 minutes. What's perhaps even better than that though is their price. For the quality you are getting, this set seems like a steal. And the cherry on top? Made in the USA. Gotta love that!!!

love these pyrex storage set!

Stacie from Kill Devil Hills, NC– Verified Buyer

This is my second set of these dishes. They are the perfect size for heating leftovers in the microwave and stack nicely in the refrigerator. They do get hot and you need to use a potholder when removing from the microwave. I wish they had a small lip or handles so that you could grab better. Sometimes I am afraid they may slip from hands. Lids fit nicely.

Nice storage dishes

Allison from el paso, TX– Verified Buyer

These are very functional pieces with lids that fit great so far! I will hand wash lids to keep them like new but they are top rack dishwasher safe. I only gave 4 stars because I would prefer a couple of containers in these shapes, but a little smaller for leftovers. I would buy again!

I've gotten other glass storage products in the past, but nothing beats pyrex for durability and practicality! Love that they've added some new colors to the lids for fun. Can't go wrong here!
